With Melbourne’s crazy and unpredictable weather, it is just too easy to catch a cold or, even worse, be caught with a seasonally inappropriate outfit. And so, it is vital that we protect ourselves from the cold—of course, in the most stylish way we know how. This Fashionisto caught my envious glare as he was all cozied up and warm, ready to combat the windy weather. This fashion studenteffortlessly pulls off this guarded and confined look with the help of a few essential items. I couldn’t help but find that his whole style has some resemblance to military uniform.
Firstly, this Fashionisto’s coat reminds me of the military-influenced coats seen on runways such as Salvatore Ferragamo’s 2012 collection. This outerwear style accentuates the masculinity of the wearer and would be a great option for morning commute. Furthermore, this soldier is ready to march on with his trendy boots (a particular favourite of mine, as I have a similar female pair). These boots look extremely comfortable, which would undoubtedly help when you’re going to and from classes across campus. As for accessories, this Fashionisto complements his outfit with an army styled duffel bag with a modern twist. Although what you see here is a fashionable assemblage of clothes, each item has a secondary purpose with protecting the wearer from the harsh winds and sore feet.
Hint: It is definitely fashionable to be comfortable and appropriately warm. For a sophisticated look, style within a colour constructed pallet like this Fashionisto has. Just wear your favourite coat and match it with items with similar (not the same) colours for a guaranteed workable outfit. You’ll be ready to brave any windy weather in no time!
